If the screen term types were properly defined on all systems I used,
I'd leave things set as screen, however, they're not.  I work on many
different systems and it is just less work to set screen's term type to
vt220 (or xterm), than to install the right bits on every box out there,
especially ones that I only touch on rare occasion.

So, I tell you how to fix it, and your answer is "No, I'm lazy" ?

Ok, that's fine.  Copying a single /usr/share/terminfo/s/screen file
to ~/.terminfo/s/screen on a handful of machines is too much work for
me too.
